Delicious work of art KOBE BEEF
TAJIMA BEEF originated in the Tajima region of Hyogo prefecture. It is considered to be the pinnacle of Japanese black beef, and is used as a breeding cow for improving WAGYU(Japanese beef) breeds all over the country .
With the love and efforts of designated producers in Hyogo prefecture, pure-bred TAJIMA BEEF calves are carefully bred and fattened.
The number of calves that can be fattened annually is limited.
Slowly raised TAJIMA BEEF is shipped to a meat center in Hyogo prefecture, and after all BSE inspections, it is evaluated under strict quality standards.
Only selected beef can get the title of KOBE BEEF. They get checked and rated according to the following:
●Yield grade which indicates the ratio of edible portion from one cow : A to C,
●Meat quality grade which indicates comprehensive evaluation of color, fineness of meat dough, quality of fat, etc. of the meat : 1 to 5
●Marbling Degree (BMS): No. 1 to 12
Only the ones that has a high score of those criteria can get the title of “Kobe beef” .
The best part of the deliciousness of KOBE BEEF lies in the highest quality lipids, which ave a low melting point that melts even at the temperature of human skin. Marbled or sashi, the harmony of the refined fat flavor rich in oleic acid and inosinic acid blends with the fine lean meat, which attracts gourmets all over the world.
